Three people were injured in a duplex fire in southeast Portland early Sunday. According to Portland Fire & Rescue, the fire broke out just after 4 a.m. near Southeast 136th Avenue and Southeast Powell Boulevard. When crews arrived, they found heavy fire and smoke coming from a duplex unit. Crews say the fire was threatening several other homes nearby, so they called for a second alarm, doubling the amount of firefighters, engines, and trucks to the scene. The fire was under control within an hour. Crews remained on scene for several more hours to clean up and perform salvage work to the affected homes. A couple and their adult son were inside the home when the fire started. They all made it out of the unit and were at neighbor’s home by the time crews arrived.
